Our Opinion

The Iberostar Laguna Azul is a great luxury resort situated within the resort strip of Cuba. The resort boasts a great array of a la carte and buffet options. The pool and beach area are also fantastic. You will never experience a shortage of lounge chairs. The Iberostar Laguna Azul is a great getaway for couples who are looking for a great place to lounge and relax.

Following in the footsteps of its sister properties, Iberostar Laguna Azul combines beauty and service for the ultimate vacation experience. Beachfront on Varadero's pristine white sands guests can choose from an abundance of water & beach activities or simply lounging and soaking up the sun. Dining is a treat at this property with a sprawling International buffet and 5 charming a la carte bistros including Asian, Caribbean and more. And at the end of day, retreat to plush accommodations filled with modern amenities.

Location: Beachfront, 30 minutes from airport, 20 minutes to Varadero and 105 minutes to Havana.

Absolutely wonderful!!

My friend and I always try and get away somewhere south and weren't sure about Cuba since the hurricane had just hit them. We arrived September 26/17 for the week.We have never been to Iberostar Laguna Azul but heard many nice things. What an understatement! It was fantastic. I can not say enough about the this location.A couple of highlights- This is #1-the breakfast a'la cart every morning was my favourite. The two ladies that were there every morning made my day. They were friendly, charming and set the tone for day. I can not say enough about them. I will return to this hotel especially because of them. They are great ambassadors for the Iberostar chain. The pool bar- staff were outstanding. Funny, charming and a constant delight. They were so welcoming to everyone that stopped in. Food-The Japanese and Italian restaurants were delicious. Well staffed and perfectly presented. The buffet... the usual but lots of choices. Rooms- Nice and cleaned daily. Always a full fridge and fresh towels. The beach and pool areas had great service, plenty of chairs available and super clean. The drinks served at lobby and beach were sweet but they were glad to adjust to your taste preference.The hotel is big and set up fairly well. Lots of staff on and everyone was very pleasant. There was entertainment each night and I personally enjoyed the lobby music in the evenings. If you are interested in seeing more, only a short taxi ride to downtown.Not too far from the airport and I love the little history lesson you get while on route. (Thank you Amaury- you make me smile)Overall- we will be back. I will gladly recommend this hotel. Thank you for an amazing trip.Jennifer

Amazing. I enjoy it a lot. The food was amazing and the service of the waiters was really good. Thanks to the staff of this hotel for the lovely days I spend in this hotel. I was 7 days there. The shows wow, I enjoy those a lot. Went to Chinese and Italian restaurants and so nice experience. Chinese amazing with the food cooked right in front of you and the show that the guy give us, really awesome.

The After Shock of Hurricane Irma

I had visited Veradero Cuba in 2013 (Melia Veradero), 2014 (Iberostar Laguna Azul-14 days), and Iberostar Laguna Azul again 2017. This time around things in Cuba have changed... with the death of Fidel and Raul being forced to take over, the influence of capitalism is strong. The beach however, remains beautiful, the grounds impeccable, the staff accommodating when pressed to action (room service in particular), the bar staff are top notch. The food uneatable, my lay medical opinion is compensate heavy handedly with copious amounts of rum and cigars and survive eating only pizza cooked outside due to the cockroaches that frequent all indoor tropical locales... my biggest disappointments were lack of cigar choice as cigars such as Behike and Cohiba (big gauge) cigars were not present anywhere in town or at any of the resorts other than the Casa de tabaca in Veradero beside el diablo...
